Fighting Negligent Legal Representation
Our attorneys have extensive experience working with courts and agencies throughout the state and have gained a reputation for sound advocacy and favorable results. When you hire an attorney, you trust that he or she is competent to handle your case and will make sure that you are given a fair opportunity in court. When you lose because of negligence, you have the right to take action.
Contact our firm if you believe that your attorney made a mistake by:
- Missing the statute of limitations
- Being ill-prepared or unequipped to handle a case or claim
- Failing to present evidence that could help you
- Representing you while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Overcharging for services
You Have The Right To Recover For Failed Legal Services
To be successful in an attorney malpractice claim, it must be shown that an attorney-client relationship existed, that the attorney acted negligently, that the attorney caused you harm and that without that negligence, you would have succeeded in your underlying case.
Proving legal malpractice can be difficult, but if you have clearly suffered a personal loss of rights or a financial recovery at the hands of an incompetent lawyer, you may be entitled to damages. Our lawyers take the time to review and assess your underlying case, give you a forthright and honest interpretation of the situation, and aggressively pursue your right to damages, when possible.
